His mission could destroy his family...

In service to King Henry II, SIR JAMES DE BARNARD must discover if his mother's new husband is a traitor, but when Jamie rescues a beautiful woman en route, she holds secrets that will change his life forever and could circumvent his mission if he isn't careful. With that thought in mind, he must decide if loving Sela is worth losing his knighthood.

A dangerous plot...

SELA DE CRECY's loyalty belongs to Lady Amye, the woman who rescued her from a brothel. Yet, she finds herself falling in love with Jamie, the lady's son--a sensual and handsome knight who rescues her from danger. When she finds herself embroiled in intrigue and the stakes are life and death, she wonders if she and Jamie will find the traitor before he finds them.

The sound of the wind swirled around the merlon, but she could not feel it. His warm body pressed against her, shielding her from the cold. Though the touch of his lips was gentle, he kissed her like a man savoring a feast. Tasting first her lips, then the line along her jaw, and the skin at the curve of her neck. She shivered as his breath tickled the sensitive place behind her ear.

"You are cold, my sweet." He took her hand and started toward the stairs. "Come, let us--"

"No!" Sela yanked her hand from his and backed away. "I cannot, Jamie." She had not called him Jamie since that day on the rooftop. Since the day she had dammed away her love for him.

"Why, Sela? We used to share something special. Do you no longer like me?"

No. She did not like him--she loved him. Tears breached the rims of her eyes and rolled down her cheeks. No longer able to stand the pain, she sobbed, pushed past him, and ran down the stairs.

Jamie looked down the dark staircase until he could no longer hear her footsteps.

She was crying. The tears on her cheeks sparkled in the moonlight, and her sobs still rang in his ears.

He cursed and pounded his fist against the stone wall. She must despise him now. Yet, he had felt the passion in their kiss.

What stood between them? His thoughts turned back to the past that no one would speak of. He had to find out what had happened to her. He would not need to worry about convincing his mother or the King if he could not break through her wall and claim her as his own.
